--Tips for Changing Your Own Bad Habits--

  • Don't believe the old saying, "You can't teach an old dog new tricks." You can break a bad habit if you really want to.

  • Be honest with yourself. Do you have some annoying, nasty habits that are hurting your marriage?

  • Share your feelings about the annoying behaviors with your spouse. Stick to "I feel..." statements.

  • Include your spouse as you brainstorm solutions to your bad habits.

  • Many people find that replacing a bad habit with a positive behavior is easier than just stopping the bad habit.

  • Don't try to change more than one irritating habit at a time.

  • Share your personal goals and expectations with your mate.

  • Share with your mate that you need support and affirmation, not criticism or nagging.

  • Don't be too hard on yourself if you slip up now and then. But don't give up either or coninually make excuses for not achieving your goal.

  • Talk with your spouse about how to reward yourself for quitting a nasty habit. Keep the reward reasonable and achievable both from a monetary and a time perspective. (c) источник
